Rockies First Baseman Michael Cuddyer to Rehab with Sky Sox Tonight

First Baseman Scheduled to Play Tonight Versus Albuquerque

The Colorado Rockies announced today that first baseman Michael Cuddyer is scheduled to start a rehabilitation assignment with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox today, Tuesday, August 14 as the Sky Sox take on the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, in a 6:05 PM start at Security Service Field.

 

Cuddyer, 32, has been on the disabled list since August 4 with a strained right oblique and will be making his first appearance since the injury. Before going on the disabled list, Cuddyer was hitting .260 (91-for-350) with 15 home runs, 30 doubles, 56 RBI and 52 runs scored in 98 games for the Rockies.

 

This will be Cuddyer’s first ever appearance in a Sky Sox uniform since signing with the Rockies this past offseason. Coming into this season, Cuddyer had played 11 seasons with the Minnesota Twins and was a career .272 (1,106-for-4,072) hitter with 141 homers, 239 doubles, 580 RBI and 606 runs scored. He last played a minor league game in 2008 when he rehabbed with the Rochester Red Wings for four games hitting .300 (3-for-10) with two doubles, a RBI and three runs scored.
